FAQ for Educators: Pine Tree Society Speech / Language Telepractice

How can you help my students?

Pine Tree Society has the technology and the expertise to help schools meet the very unique needs being presented to us all right now, including schools in rural areas or those that don’t have speech therapists at all. Our speech/language therapy sessions allow students to maintain and work on their speech and language goals and help prevent regression.

What services do you offer schools? 

Pine Tree Society offers individualized services, including:

  • Ongoing therapeutic intervention
    • Articulation
    • Language development
    • Social language and expectations in a distance learning environment
  • Educational coaching
  • Consults for Assistive Technology for Learning to support children who may have more challenges accessing the curriculum during social isolation

What does a typical telepractice session look like?

Sessions are typically one-on-one but we can also implement group sessions so students have the chance to see their friends too. Sessions may also incorporate other supports in a child’s life, such as behavioral consultants.

Which remote platform do you use for telepractice sessions?

Pine Tree Society’s telepractice services are provided via Zoom, a HIPAA-compliant, user-friendly video conferencing technology that is easily accessed from any device.

Is Zoom a secure platform?

Pine Tree Society adheres to Zoom’s recommendations to ensure a secure web conferencing environment through password protection of online meeting rooms by default, elimination of Meeting ID display, removal of the attendee attention tracking feature and implementation of a join flow procedure for web clients.
